In 1964, a band of hippies known as the Merry Pranksters, who were cohorts and followers of author Ken Kesey, gave a school bus they named “Furthur” a psychedelic paint job and drove it from California to New York, partying all the way.
Now Kesey’s son Zane has taken his father’s legacy back on the road. Armed with a new band of Merry Pranksters, the Furthur bus traveled over 15,000 miles in 75 days, visiting music festivals, community events, tribal gatherings, and national landmarks.
Through never-before-seen archival footage, as well as over 300 hours of film shot over the course of three months, Going Furthur explores the roots of a culture birthed in the early 60s, and how the mission of those first few idealists has influenced the counterculture of today.
